Product Description

Amazon Review

Readers expecting something special from this first hardback Buffy novel won't be disappointed. The regular pairing of Christopher Golden and Nancy Holder has produced an excellent story that pits Buffy against an immortal vampire.

Whenever she is staked, Veronique's personality returns in the body of the next vampire to rise in her vicinity. This immortality is a gift from the Triumvirate, a powerful evil created from the joining of three lesser demons. Veronique has spent centuries trying to bring them into this world, and now she has almost succeeded. Her arrival in Sunnydale triggers a spate of deaths, disappearances and grave robbings as she prepares for the final ritual.

As if this is not enough for Buffy to contend with, her mother is seriously ill, and faces an operation. Angel tries to support her, but his own eternal youth seems to mock her as she faces up not only to the possibility of losing her mother but also to her heightened awareness of the short life expectancy of Slayers. The juxtaposition of these two storylines creates an effective emotional resonance that gives this scary, and in places gruesome, novel depth as well as excitement. --Liz Sourbut

Product Description

When Buffy Summers encounters a vampire who is willing to sacrifice herself to let her companions escape, she doesn't have time to ponder the demon's uncharacteristic behaviour as she stakes it and watches its body explode to dust. Until the next night, when a new vampire confronts the Chosen One and her friends. A vampire who knows Buffy's name and can anticipate her style of attack. Who doesn't seem to fear the stake in Buffy's fist. A vampire whose name is Veronique. But Buffy really knows she is in trouble when she discovers that Veronique is immortal. No matter how often Buffy might destroy her, it is only a matter of time before her ancient evil, wearing a new body, rises once again.

I am a huge enthusiast of these two very talented authors, and I am never disappionted by their works. With `Immortal` you are in for a gripping time the moment you turn the pages, All your favourite characters battling towards another Apocolypse, fighting the seemingly unkillable Vampire Veronique who is a most formidable opponent for the Slayer and her friends. The Vampire Veronique serves the pure demon, the Truimvirate and wishes to unleash the demon upon the earth...chaos and battles a plenty ensue. Slayers past and present (and Watchers!) form an integral part of this gripping, if a little gory at times, thrill ride! Highly recommended, you will not be able to put this book down..

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT STORY 24 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
This book took me a while to read through, but in general it was great. It focuses on how Buffy has to cope with her family problems, i.e. her mum and her duty as a slayer. Veronique is a powerful vampire. It would be cool if she was in the TV series.

This book has to be one of the best i have read because once put in front of an imortal vampire secrets from other slayers, angels, and the vampires story come into light. With her mum sick she has to worry about mum and her duty as slayer which also brings into light her relationship with angel, she will live long or die young, he will live forever. great book found it hard to put down.

I thourght the book was very good and the most ambitious plot yet, but I didnt think the narrating was very good. Charisma Carpenters English accent for giles sounded like a mixture of Russian, Italian and a few more. Although some of the accents are really good. I think the authour wrote very well it must have been hard to think of a way of defeating a immortal vampire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant 31 Aug 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was very slow to get into unlike any of the other buffy books I have read and so I left it a while before I read on BIG MISTAKE ! Once you get to the third chapter the book becomes un-put-down-able and the slow introduction becomes very relevant to the story.
The story lines are very visible all and all the characters play a major part in this book even Angel comes out of his shell (a bit). I would defiantly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys watching the series.

By J. N. Valente VINE VOICE
Format:Audio Cassette
The idea of a Truly immortal vampire is an interesting one and lives up to most of its potentialities. Veronique is like no enemy Buffy and her friends have faced before on account of her uncanny ability to be dusted/staked/whatever and then proceed to inhabit another mortal body.
The gang's all here, even Joyce - who's brief cancer scare is very moving on account of... well, that season 5 episode and that. Angel seems to have been reduced to one of the scoobies, but by now it's fairly clear his love for Buffy and vice-versa is as good as doomed.
As for Charisma Carpenter's reading - Yay! At last someone out of over a dozen main characters on the Buffyverse commited voice to tape. She's spot on... well on Cordelia, obviously. But also excellent on Xander, good on Willow, Joyce, Buffy and all the Vamps. Least said about Giles...
Still, extremely entertaining if you're into this sort of thing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book if a little confusing... 25 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
This book is fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed it, in fact I spent a whole night reading it to find out what happened that I got up late for college! This book has only one flaw in it though and that is that it has at least 5 different story lines going on at once and it if you're not careful you could get a bit confused. However, that aside, it was brilliant. The character's descriptions of emotion and feeling were especially good!! If you liked this now try the gatekeeper trilogy if you haven't already!!!
